Time is Scarce

I didn’t write this original post. It’s a reblog. The author has a very good point.

He said “Time isn’t a commodity.”

I thought about this in relation to writing.  Every book, post, article written is someone giving you a piece of their time. A piece of their life. Time they’ll never be able to regain. Time is scarce and limited. Which is why it shouldn’t be wasted on unproductive things.

How much time do we spend on things, thoughts, and even people that’s unproductive? Probably a lot if we think about it and add it all up.  I think we all can learn to make a greater effort in using our time wisely.

About unholypursuit

A. White, a former librarian who is also long time member of Romantic Time and Publisher's Weekly. A. White has been writing for over fifteen years. She took classes in creative writing in college, specializing in ancient myths and legends. and at a local community center while living in Chicago. In college she won the national contest to verbally list every country in the world, it's capital and ingenious language. Her works are mainly horror, fantasy, extreme, and sci-fi as well as, as some may says, "the truly strange predicament and puzzling." Books that I've written are "Clash with the Immortals, and eleven others which are part of the "Unholy Pursuit saga,". She has been working on the Chronicles since 2007. She wished to complete them all before introducing them to public so the readers wouldn't have to for the continuation to be written. The ideas of the book come from classic literature such as whose work greatly influence the world world such as Homer, Sophocles, Herodotus, Euripides, Socrates, Hippocrates, Aristophanes, Plato, Aristotle and many more. The "Book of Enoch" influenced the usage of Azazael as a main character and love interest. I created the primary main character from the Chronicle of Saints. I wanted to show them as real flesh and blood with thoughts, desires and yearning as any human. Not as they are so often depicted. So I created one of my own to show her as a real human that everyone can relate to.

    Time is definitely something I’ve been thinking about a lot lately. Especially in regards to how many people are a prisoner of it when it’s simply an illusion.

    • Yes, unfortunately the modern world duly operates by it. But in a sense mankind has always operated by it. The hourglass and sundial are centuries old. But I know what you mean by we are prisoners of it. Every minute of the day and night is allotted by an assigned activity.

    This exactly why it couldn’t be wasted on people who aren’t worthy of your time.
